Do you ever find yourself at the end of summer feeling like you didn’t squeeze in enough trips and spontaneous getaways? We are definitely feeling that last minute wanderlust as August comes to a close and have some ideas that are sure to cure those End of Summer Blues. Here are six of those cures:
Take a Trip to Your Nearest National Park
Head to your nearest National Park and enjoy the beautiful outdoors! You can find your nearest one here. Besides getting some fresh air and seeing tons of nature, national parks have so many outdoor activities you can partake in with friends and family. From spelunking to sand-boarding to hiking, there’s tons of different activities you can embark on in your nearest national forest.
Go To A Food Festival
From lobster to cheese to avocado, it seems that you can find a nearby food festival dedicated to almost any food. Bring out your inner foodie and end summer with a full and happy stomach, by checking out which food festivals are left near you this summer.
Go Fruit Picking
There’s always a fruit in season, and summer ones happen to be the best (in our opinion!). Whether it’s just for the day, or you make a whole weekend out of it, spending a day at the farm, picking fresh fruits, is a great way to get outside and spend quality time. And good news, there’s places you can pick in every country across the U.S.
Go On A Glamping / Camping Trip
Whether you like to pitch your tent and rough it, or take all your things and glamp it, this could easily be one of the easiest and most fun ways to get in a last minute trip. There’s tons of campgrounds that don’t even require a reservation - just bring your camping supplies and enjoy the great outdoors. If you don’t feel like traveling, you can even camp in your own backyard. S'mores and a change of scenery will feel like a vacation no matter where you are!
Go On A Road Trip
Road trips are always fun and an easy, non-committal way to plan a trip. Driving up a coast or stopping at all the top spots in your state, you’re sure to see some cool places that you hadn’t seen before. You can plan all the stops or wake up one morning and decide you want to get in the car and drive. Either way, don’t forget your snacks, playlists, and best co-captains!
Buy Tickets to A Last Minute Concerts
Last minute concerts are the best kind of concerts. Hands down. There’s sure to be some type of concert close to you before the end of summer, where you can get cheap tickets and rally a group to join you in singing and dancing to your favorite jams.
No matter what adventure you choose to end your summer with a bang, we’re sure you’ll have a good time. Make sure not to forget your Cheeky Go water bottle as all that adventuring makes a person thirsty!
